e1yO8uoNCe8I want you to become aware of a specific ‘urban issue’. Something that is hot, something new, something that matters. You can pick any issue yourself, as long it has an impact on the quality of life of citizens, and as dealing with that issue will effectively change cities.
I want you to explore that issue by means of research, in order to learn how design (or planning) can improve (or worsen) that issue.
Finally I want you to formulate solutions, and implement these solutions by means of design.
Much of my own work has been dealing with sustainable mobility, multifunctional land use, underground space, high-rise, climate change, urban heat islands, green house horticulture and creative industries.
Graduate students I am still proud of are:
